It's hard to even remember how life was without the Internet. When I was in High School and my first few years of college, Internet access was a luxury, and I had to do most of my research at the library, digging out one dusty old book after another. Things are sure different now, aren't they? It's hard to think of not having access to any information we want at our fingertips. I have become so dependent on the Internet now that I wonder if I would remember how to use the library!

It was quite difficult to imagine without internet. Slowly we are becoming internet addicted. Today we spending hours on internet as minutes. How time was gone we dont know? We just feel that we have sitted few minutes before.

If the Internet disapper, we can't send e-mail, we have to send letter. and we can't search from the internet, if we want some information we have to go to library. And the most important thing is that we can't earn money from the internet!

OH NO!Then Valve Steam Games will be kissed goodbye for a long time! I need to download bought games on digital media and updates for Counter-Strike Source! NOO! We Need Internet! Look at it this way! Valve has internet steam servers all along seattle! ALL IN ONE PLACE! a storm hit seattle! and valve Steam servers were brought offline! YOU COULD CONNECT STEAM AND PLAY GAMES, except there were less hosted games visible. If an earthquake hurt the internet in that area. So much for having steam, but to wait for repairs and be bored until internet is brought online.

Sure can, I sometimes miss those days. While I manage to keep it as part of my life and not take it over, it does take time away like the television in getting things done. Only as long as I can earn and learn it will be part of my life. Sure do miss the quieter times though. I would have more time to be outdoors, read more books, maybe watch more movies. Probably write more letters too.

I also miss those days, when we went outside to play with friends, went to library to read there or to borrow some books to read at home, to meet friends for small talks etc'. Yes you right, thanks.

Internet is mostly used for information sharing/transfer. Information is a commodity. You have to pay for it. I remember when we didn't have the net. Finding the information we needed was a boring, tedious, stressful and sometimes fruitless. I would go to libraries and barely find what I need or if I found it I'll have to lug back the books home to read all of it.
